Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 7:30 AM CDT Aug. 27, 2016 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a

* Flood Advisory for rapid rises for...
eastern Will County in northeastern Illinois...
Cook County in northeastern Illinois...
Lake County in northwestern Indiana...

* until 1130 am CDT

* at 727 am CDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to showers
and some thunderstorms. This will cause minor flooding in the
advisory area. Reports of one and a quarter to nearly two inches
of rain have been received from volunteer observers. Most of this
has fell since 300 am.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Chicago... Cicero... Hammond... Gary... Evanston... Skokie...
Des Plaines... Orland Park... Tinley Park... Oak Lawn... Berwyn...
Mount Prospect... Oak Park... Glenview... Wheeling... Park ridge...
Calumet City... Portage... Merrillville and Northbrook.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in
urban areas... highways... streets and underpasses as well as other
poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Do not attempt to travel
across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated... or
ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.
